9780060930783: The War on Pain

For centuries pain has been our most formidable adversary, but astounding breakthroughs in pain medicine have turned the tide against suffering. An eminent pain specialist, Scott Fishman understands that beyond the physical anguish, chronic pain isolates its victims while it devastates families, relationships, and careers. Too often, pain sufferers must do battle against a medical culture that is largely ill-prepared to cope with their needs. And yet breakthroughs in neuroscience, pharmacology, and mind-body therapies have given doctors and their patients the upper hand. The War on Pain arms readers with the information they need to understand and manage the full spectrum of pain, from chronic back pain to acute pain, from migraines and arthritis to the suffering of terminal illness. Using case studies, Dr Fishman explores the full range of pain-fighting techniques that get results, from surgical nerve blocks to acupuncture, from common analgesics to opioids, from psychiatric drugs to cognitive behavioural therapies. The best chance of defeating pain, he believes, is an integrative arsenal of traditional and alternative weapons. This book aims to arm each of us with the knowledge and choices available to help us handle our pain.

Product Description:

If you are one of the 45 million Americans suffering from chronic pain, you've most likely seen numerous doctors and tried a wide range of medicines and treatments, only to alleviate your pain. You've probably come to believe that there's nothing to be done and that your chronic pain, is, well, chronic. Now, in a groundbreaking contribution, Dr. Scott Fishman introduces an interdisciplinary pain-management approach that integrates traditional and alternative techniques including pharmcology, neuroscience, experimental precedures and mind-body medicine. For anyone who suffers from chronic pain conditions such as back pain, post-surgical pain, migraines, and arthritis, The War on Pain, with the latest research personal stories of patients, and the wise and compassionate advice of a leading pain expert, is a patient's best defense.
